Local and regional level funding via the EU LIFE Call – now open for application

The European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) is now accepting applications for its 2023 LIFE Clean Energy Transition call. The programme provides funding for local and regional level actors across Europe with the aim of facilitating the transition towards a resilient, energy-efficient and renewables-based economy.  It offers a funding rate of 95 % and includes a number of sub-topics of particular interest to municipalities such as: 

  • LOCAL – Technical support to clean energy transition plans and strategies in municipalities and regions
  • OSS – Integrated services for clean energy transition in buildings and businesses
  • PDA – Project Development Assistance for sustainable energy investments
  • BETTERRENO – Energy Performance of Buildings - Creating the conditions to make renovation faster, deeper, smarter, service- and data-driven

The LIFE Clean Energy Transition call stands alongside three further LIFE sub-programmes also currently accepting applications: Nature and Biodiversity; Circular Economy and Quality of Life; and Climate. In total, 99 million euros are being made available via LIFE’s programmes.

The application deadline for all LIFE Clean Energy Transition call topics is 16 November 2023.
